Product Description

Review

Here is another innovative new Search Press series for the budding artist how to draw. This initial entry is all about flowers, which is surely one of the most popular subjects for art. All you need is a soft pencil or two, some paints and paper and this book. This is a real back-to-basics approach, both to the subject of drawing and to writing books on drawing. Forget all those pages devoted to materials and tips, and the written descriptions of what you need to do, and look instead at a book filled with just diagrams. Who needs words after all, to show how to draw pictures? Every page shows you how, in about eight or nine staged steps, to paint a particular garden flower. At the bottom is a finished tonal drawing in done in pencil, and one painted in watercolors. In each of the drawings the previous stage is shown in a different color, so you can see what to do next. It is surprisingly easy to do, although the huge leap from a simple pencil outline to the complex tonal or painted study is far from obvious, and I would have preferred fewer early stages and more showing the later nuances. --Rachel Hyde, MyShelf.com

I was a bit disappointed with this book. There is a one page introduction and the rest of the pages are just outlines of flowers showing the steps builing up to the painting stage (as per the cover). There are no tips (eg looking for contact points etc, which I got from another book) and no other text at all apart from the introduction. I think the pages on drawing contained within other books are much more helpful.

This is the first book I ever used and now I am able to recognise the format of the plants AND to alter the designs with confidence.

This book has been marvelous, i am a floristry student and did not realise that i had to draw flowers so i have used this book to do my portfolio and i could not have achieved a flower that looked like a flower without the aid of this brilliant book.

I was very disappointed with this book. I had expected really step-by-step instructions but all there is are some outlined doodles which are supposed to guide you to draw a perfect flower. No tips or suggestions or anything else. Save your money and buy a more instructive book instead.

The step-by-step breakdown and drawing in this book explains so much and, together with the Marjorie Blamey Learn How to Draw from Collins, I am learning so much about drawing and painting flowers.

Thank you Janet Whittle for an easy to understand approach to drawing flowers. You have restored my confidence in my O-Level "level" art.

A very nice book for anyone who thinks they cannot draw :-) It shows the stages of adding new details to the sketch (like in the example on the cover) and includes suggestions for both pencil and watercolour pictures. I use coloured pencils and the results are quite good. Recommended!

This is really helpful for anyone who wants to draw flowers and thinks they are useless at drawing. Easy to copy flower drawing in stages. Not much in the way of text, but nice pictures to copy and mine looked pretty good for someone who "cannot draw". Good price too.
